Wood Sculptures by Ernst Stark
After finding a piece of wood in the forest, Ernst Stark then bares a picture from that piece, layer by layer, like an archaeologist. This takes time and patience.
Many of his works are postcard-sized, framed by watercolor. Sometimes the pieces are life-sized and sculpted from whole tree trunks. The themes can be
or just a thing, a found object.
Ernst Stark processes the wood until it transforms, it morphs into something animate. The animal becomes a portrayed object, the landscape becomes
a space for memories.
It all has its own pace and rhythm and is never hurried.
In essence: Ernst Stark transferrs a two dimensional image into the space.
The exhibition „Herzstücke“ will show wooden sculptures from the period of 2003 to 2016, arranged by the artist to form a picture in the room.
The centerpiece of this
colorful Installation will be a life-sized animal, resembling an okapi.
